  1. I haven’t read a lot of the books on your list and it’s making itch to go find them and read them as fast as lightning. The Lunar Chronicles are also some of my favorite books and I can’t wait for Winter to be released!

  2. I haven’t read a lot of fairytale retellings as it isn’t a genre I like to read a lot. I do have the Lunar series on my to-read list. I know I have read a few fairytale retellings, but can’t remember any of them at the moment. Great list!
